London: Shaun Maloney's injury-time free-kick earned Wigan Athletic a 1-1 draw at relegation rivals Queens Park Rangers, who appeared set for victory despite the early dismissal of Bobby Zamora.

Loic Remy looked to have boosted Rangers' survival hopes with a sublime 85th-minute goal, but Maloney's equaliser left Harry Redknapp's men second from bottom, seven points adrift of Premier League safety with six games remaining.

Wigan, who have played a game less, remain in the bottom three on goal difference, but will rue their failure to make the most of their numerical advantage following Zamora's 21st-minute dismissal for a head-high challenge on Jordi Gomez.
